NextFab Foundation’s mission is to promote the development and operation of Hardware Makerspaces (also known as “Fab Labs”) and Incubators scaled to support (a) humanitarian projects which target at-risk populations in conflict affected areas; and (b) hardware technology development / commercialization in select emerging markets which are well advanced on the technology continuum.



NADINE project’s aim is to develop a novel way of integrating migrants and refugees through ICT-enabled solutions that will automatically adapt to the specificities of each person. NADINE creates an adaptable platform able to: 1) provide functionalities for skill assessment, 2) dynamically create tailored suited training programs to adapt existing skills into host societies needed skills, 3) provide a digital companion that will suggest and assist the end-users through administrative tasks and 4) create a data lake available to public administration bodies for better organization of migration flows. NADINE will innovate in several directions from novel training tools, adaptable to different learning setups, to novel ways of information flow handling for public administrations to work efficiently in both business as usual contexts and migration bursts ones. NADINE platform will create potential new markets in different market
areas and also will provide novel open tools that will foster new innovation capacity to the EU area.


The project aims to feed the talent pipeline, enable and promote vivid brain circulation and fresh innovation power to prepare the EU at large to solve todays and societal challenges; to demonstrate added value of STEAM for science education and how it stimulates uptake of science careers; to equip students, education providers, businesses with knowledge, practices and tools to develop STEAM based curricula and learning approaches.


JOINclusion promotes a new approach to social inclusion based on empowerment and skills acquisition as factors able to bring behavioural change and approach to differences. The project has the ambition to achieve a new milestone towards the provision of innovative game-based pedagogy and assessment methods boosting emotional intelligence, empathy in particular, as a key pillar of pro-social skills fostering diversity and inclusion. The project combines interactive multimedia design with the most effective principles of technologically-mediated learning to develop a game-based educational tool applying psychological modelling of scenarios, to engage the learner emotionally and collaboratively, supporting cognitive engagement (i.e. mental processing and metacognition), affective engagement (emotion processing and regulation), behavioural engagement (gestures, embodied actions, and movement) and socio-cultural engagement (social interactions embedded within a cultural context).


The project INTERCULTURAL CRAFT: a bridge between traditional knowledge and different cultures (INTERCRAFT) aims to promote new forms of
social innovation and intercultural dialogue, creating and supporting learning and training paths that can recognize and enhance the craft skills and competences of migrants, asylum seekers, refugees, and relate their skills to the traditional local artisan knowledge of the host European territories. Main objectives:

• enhance the traditional knowledge and skills of migrant people;
• contrast the dispersion of local traditional artisan knowledge and techniques.


The E-MEDIC project proposal aims to deliver practical strategies and learning modules for the academic staff (professors, lecturers, researchers) in health sector.

The main idea of the project is to provide methods and solutions adapted to the specific needs of the medical educators. In particular, the learning platform will be designed to be very ease-of-use, with targeted contents, giving the possibility to the medical educators to learn also when they have little slots of time. The learning environment will be designed (and co-designed with them) starting from the paradigms of the ubiquitous and mobile learning. The learning contents will be supplied with quick videos, podcasts and practical experiences, avoiding to burden the learner with a great amount of data to read.


IA-ME project aims primarily to support teachers and accompany them in this unavoidable an necessary change in the school context, offering an AI-based tool to orient their work in this complexity. Moreover, it will also

address the priority of reducing inequalities in the learning process and ensuring the inclusion of all students. Obtaining the grant allows us to achieve these challenging objectives, with significant ripple effects in every educational field.


The VIW project is funded by the European Commission through the Spanish National Agency for the Erasmus+ Programme, with the aim of making HEIs more inclusive by promoting a holistic comprehension of the gender issues in migration flows. Odyssea is participating as Associate partner.

Caring for the Caregiver

An innovative vocational training programme for older people’s support occupations. Odyssey proposes a holistic action that will alleviate and serve these vulnerable groups. Within the framework of the action we will design two fast-track vocational training programmes, entitled “Care Worker for the Elderly” and “Health Service Advisor”. These programmes aim to provide elderly members of society and their relatives with the necessary support for their daily needs and at the same time train vulnerable people to secure a job by staffing a field that suffers from a lack of qualified personnel.
